A work mat for students to use when working on addition and subtraction concepts.

This work mat has the students complete the following tasks:

• write a word problem to represent a number sentence
• write the fact family for a number sentence
• solve the number sentence
• draw a picture to represent the number sentence.

This mat is great to use with your guided math groups and when put in a math center. Simply slip a copy in a dry erase sleeve so that your students can use a dry erase marker and then wipe clean. Alternatively, project a copy on your dry erase board to use as a whole class math warm-up.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color or black and white version.
